Overview

This five-year Program adds an additional year of study, research and teaching experience to the medical curriculum, culminating in a Master of Science Degree (MS) in Neurobiology and Anatomy that is conferred along with the MD degree upon graduation.

This institution has a an enduring history of training physician-scientists interested in academic careers that combine teaching, clinical medicine, and research, or similarly broad careers in industry or government. As part of a broad initiative to establish an Academic Research Track (ART) within the medical school curriculum, the Department of Neuroscience offers an MD-MS Program in Medical Neurobiology. This five-year Program adds an additional year of study, research and teaching experience to the medical curriculum, culminating in a Master of Science Degree (MS) in Neurobiology and Anatomy that is conferred along with the MD degree upon graduation.

The overall goal of the Program is to engage students in academically oriented training early in their medical education. This in turn will prepare them for comparably oriented residencies and fellowships that will ultimately lead toward faculty positions in US medical schools as physician-scientist-educators and leaders of the future. Further, the MD-MS path is designed to seamlessly extend into an MD-PhD for those so inclined. Nearly half of our past students have taken this route, all as a result of their MS year.
